New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1926.. Green cloth, lettered in gilt and blind. Expert restorations to spine extremities and joints, light foxing to prelims, small discoloration at top edge of first several leaves, but a good, sound copy. Half morocco slipcase. First edition of this collection of short stories (presumably the earliest printing, with no signs of type deterioration on pages 38, 90 and 248). Inscribed by Fitzgerald on the front free endsheet: "For Anne Ober [/] Hoping that none of her descendents will be sad young men [/] F. Scott Fitzgerald." With the ink signature of Harold Ober on the opposite pastedown. Harold Ober served as F. Scott Fitzgerald's literary agent beginning in November 1919, and until the end of Fitzgerald's career, as his confidant and friend. Anne and Harold Ober were particularly significant in providing support for Scottie Fitzgerald after Zelda was hospitalized. There are a few small pencil notes in the table of contents. A fine association copy. BRUCCOLI A12.I.A.
